Hello all *

Would like to survey the Collective Wisdom on the maingencycode attribute of the EADID element.  Are most people using the OCLC code for this or the MARC-21 code?  For example for us the OCLC code is SYB but the MARC code is NSyU.  Just wondered whether there's a good reason to go one way or the other.  Obviously to get records into OCLC we would have to use the OCLC code, but I'm wondering if there are any other pros or cons to using one or the other.

Thanks *
